Ahhh, 60º nights and 70º days. 🥰 Okay, fine, we’re still having some 80º days, but it’s really feeling like fall, huh? And fall means a few things — sweaters, pumpkin spice, backyard fires, and soup.
Trista here, and last week in The Wrap (at the bottom of the newsletter) I admitted that I have gone into soup mode and asked for some of your favorite recipes. Thanks to everyone who sent me their fave soups — I can’t wait to make them. But when I’m not in the mood to cook, I want to know who has the best soup in Chattanooga — that’s where you come in.
Whether you’re a fan of chili or creamy butternut squash, there’s a soup for all of us that hits the spot. 🍲 Question is, where can we find our match made in soup heaven? Let us know so we can make the ultimate guide of the best soup in Chattanooga.
Well, y’all came through — we received over 100 messages declaring who has the best soup. While we can’t include every entry (some of you claimed the best soup is at your house), we’re going to give you the top 10 mentions.
